Setauket, New York 11733


In this exciting workshop, accomplished artist Laura Westlake will teach you how to create exquisite images using colored pencils. Each student will accomplish an understanding of how color pencil is applied in a realistic approach. By the end of the workshop students will leave with a finished work of art or a piece that they can finish on their own.

A native Long Islander, growing up in Stony Brook, Laura Westlake is essentially a self-taught artist drawing and painting since the age of four. Her love of nature and the outdoors has always been the inspiration for her work. Laura studied at Santa Barbara College in California, and The School Of Visual Arts in New York where she developed an interest in commercial illustration that lasted for 15 years. Her career included work for television, magazines, portraiture, and book illustration. She later turned her focus back to the fine arts in the late 1980’s painting subjects, which came from personal experience.

Students are responsible for bringing their own materials.
